Ronald H. Reynier, Sr. passed away at his home in Hood River on January 21, 2020. He was 95. Ron and his wife Nelda moved to Oregon in 1995 to follow their “boys”, Scott and Ron.

Ron Sr. grew up in Pottstown, PA, and attended The Hill School before joining the United States Naval Reserve amid World War II in 1943. He served as a Pharmacist’s Mate 1/c on the USS Barnett and the USS Leyte, participating in the Normandy Invasion, the Battle of Leyte Gulf, and the invasions at Okinawa and Iwo Jima. After the war, Ron used the GI Bill to attend Wagner College and the Brooklyn Law School. He was recalled for the Korean War and served in the Mediterranean during that time. After being honorably discharged as a LTJC in 1953, Ron returned to Pottstown to start his long legal career representing many throughout the Pottstown area. He also served as Pottstown’s city attorney for many, many years.

The love of Ron’s life was his wife Nelda, to whom he was married for 62 years. They were never apart. Happy family times included summer trips to Lake Wallenpaupack and skiing at Stowe, Vermont. He and Nelda were very social, and their home in Holly Court was the site of many great parties. After moving to Oregon, they quickly became “locals” at Hood River restaurants and made close friendships with young and old alike. We were reminded recently that at 86 years old, after a nice dinner at Celilo, they could not get past the bouncer at Jack’s because they did not have ID. Ron also loved Christmas, and what many don’t know is that Ron dressed up as Santa Claus for years and did house calls all around Hood River.

Ron is survived by his wife Nelda, his sons Scott and Ron, and two grandchildren, all of whom reside in or around the area.

Nelda, Scott, Ronnie and Family,

From the first day I met "Mr. R" and became his secretary, I knew I was one of the lucky ones. Not only was he a wonderful man, but he was also an amazing boss. I know I speak for all of us admins at Reynier, Crocker, Allebach & Reber when I say that he was the light of our office. His pranks and jokes, his jolly laugh and his all around sweet and calming personality made us all feel like we were in the best place we could be. He never forgot about us and treated us as though we were each special in our own way. If it was an exceptionally hot afternoon he would disappear for a while and return with 20 sundaes from McD's or frosties from Wendy's and walk around the office handling them out....just because. He did this all the time. He made me want to be a better person. I've kept in touch with him and Nelda over the years mostly around the holidays and looked forward to their cards with glitter or confetti (I think this was Nelda lol). Me and my family always had a good laugh as we were cleaning up the remnants of those cards. My heart hurts when I think this wonderful man has departed this earth, but I hold too many dear memories of him to ever truly lose sight of him. Many blessing to you Nelda, Scott, Ronnie and family as you carry his legacy with you. Mr. R was a great man and he has touched so many.

To the Reyiner family I would like to express my deepest condolences for the loss of Ron. He was such a fine man. I did Nelda’s hair for years before they went in to their new home. I didn’t get to see them very often and I always made sure they had candy for the holidays. I loved them so much I hope Nelda is doing well and that your grief is on only on his loss because he left an amazing legacy behind. They shared much of their party and entertainment days. I wish I would have been there. RIP Ron. You are missed
